Public notice: revoked soil contamination policy

Wednesday 18 October 2017

After 15 years of operation, we have revoked the policy 'Environment - Contaminated Sites, Safety and Soil Contamination Policy' which was originally adopted on 3 September 2002. 

The key components of this policy have been incorporated into the attached operational guidance document - 'Soil Contamination Management Guidelines for Operational Staff'. 

We have done this because: 

  • due to the ever-changing nature of contamination issues, risk management is fundamental to effective management of contaminated sites
  • we have in place effective measures to manage the risks associated with contaminated sites and these guidelines better record the steps Council has and will take to manage these risks.

If you would like more information about we manage soil contamination in Yarra, please call us on 9205 5555 or email [email protected]

This was a Council Resolution in our Council Meeting on 19 September 2017
